New Miami Cultural Hub, Oasis, Opening May 8
A new cultural hub and entertainment complex is opening in the Wynwood section of Miami, according to Local10.com. The Oasis, which will have restaurants, stores, art, bars, and a live music venue, is scheduled to open on May 8.
Vendors of the 35,000 square-foot courtyard will include Mr. Mandolin, Alidoro, Buya, and Prince Street Pizza. There will also be a fitness studio and a nightclub with an indoor/outdoor cocktail lounge.
The owners of the property, David Weitz and Erik Rutter of Carpe Real Estate Partners, enlisted the help of 305 Concepts’ Sven Vogtland and Alan Drummond to bring The Oasis to life.
Their goal is for The Oasis to become a cultural epicenter of Miami, with the Tower Bar becoming a signature landmark of the city that will be recognizable to people everywhere.
Vogtland said, “The Tower Bar is this large tower that we wanted to put there as a beacon of Wynwood. So, when you land at Miami International Airport, or when you’re in any of the buildings or towers around, you’ll see this large container tower as kind of a landmark in the neighborhood.”
The performance space will be an arena for a variety of musicians, from local to big named stars, as well as poets, comedians, and guest speakers.
“There’s a void in Miami for a venue and stage of our size,” Vogtland said. “So, we’re going after some really cool stuff. Amazing comedians, large performing artists. If you name it, we’re definitely going after it.
“Everything from Earth, Wind, and Fire to Hall and Oates to newer stuff to rock bands to hip-hop, reggaeton, and world-class DJs. Food fairs and festivals, markets, and so forth. Health and wellness, such as fitness classes. We have a lot of exciting things we plan on doing.”
